GWSW 67  Make A Swish 78

Make A Swish absorbs 44 point onslaught from James Morse to win 78-67.

James Morse was a one-man army Wednesday night, hitting shot after shot to keep the game in contention.

Make A Swish opened the half running and shooting their way to a 28-14 point lead. Sean Concannon led the attack, scoring 16 of his 22 points in the period. Morse had the hot hand for GWSW, and his teammates fed him over and over to finish the half down 38-34. It looked like GWSW had all the momentum, but Scott Blumenthal hit answering shots to silence their bench.


The second half tested Make A Swish's balanced offense against relentless pressure from Morse and Brandon Havens, who finished with 10 points and a game-high 5 steals. GWSW closed the gap to 67-65 in the closing minutes, until a flagrant foul call on Matt McDonough gave Make A Swish some breathing room at 71-65.

Bouchard and Brendan Connolly recorded double-doubles with 19 and 13 and 12 and 10, respectively.

Big Tuna 70  The Water Bears 72

Water Bears Battle to 72-70 Victory over Big Tuna

The Water Bears clutched out a win over Big Tuna tonight in a razor-close, physical matchup.  Dave Opp showcased a complete game, finishing with 14 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 blocks.  4 of those assists came in the opening half, as the Water Bears raced to a 20-8 lead.

 Big Tuna responded with a 16-4 run to tie the game at 24, led by Joey Lisella and capped with a 3 from Matthew Connolly.  Lisella finished with 35 points and 7 boards, and Connolly added 13 and 5.  The teams went into the half tied at 31 after 3 free throws from Lisella.

 The Water Bears stormed out of the second half, going up 54-39 on a 3 from Opp.  Big Tuna refused to go away, cutting the lead to 56-54 on a jumper from Daniel Kearney, who finished with 9 points.  Big Tuna again cut the lead to 72-70 in the closing minutes off a crucial steal and assist from Brady Murphy to Connolly, but a clutch offensive rebound by Miles Adams would seal the game.

 Adams grabbed 10 boards to go with 9 points, 2 steals, and 2 blocks, and Sam King poured in 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Amnesty Clause Candidates 57  The Palace 73

Palace Show No Amnesty

The Palace slowly accumulated a large lead in this game with their tough and physical play. Everytime I looked up it seemed like Mike was crashing the glass for a difficult rebound and facilitating a break to one of his teammates.  When the point guard, Payne, wasn't slashing through the lane for difficult finishes, he was also hitting the glass with surprising regularity. Cedric was also cleaning the glass and scoring down low. Overall, the Palace seemed to grab every board in sight, which was a large key to their convincing victory. The Amnesty Clause Candidates, however, were not ones to roll over either. They kept coming at the Palace and were chipping away at the lead when the clock ran out. Colin Bray played a stand out game for the ACC, as he dropped 20 points and was relentless in his attacking. Matt Connolly had 4, count em, 4, blocks in the game and also grabbed his fair share of boards. Jon Press and Marcus Alexander also were active contributors for the ACC, while #28 never checked in to give me his name, but played a good game nonetheless.

7th Floor Crew Outlasts Spin Em

The 7th Floor Crew came out of the gates hot in this game, with the quick and physical guard-play from players like Mike Salis and Mike Simoni along with the bruising play of big man Rob  proving a lot to handle for the Spin Em squad. They were getting steals, running the floor, and finishing difficult lay-ups with wearying regularity. However, they only had five men on the team and a combination of foul trouble and fatigue started to take its toll. Meanwhile, the sharpshooters of Spin Em, especially Pat Kelley and Brian Edgerely, began to sink treys from all over the court. Riding this barrage of threes, Spin Em made what had previously reeked of a blow-out into a tightly contested game. That's not to mention the impressive post moves displayed by Spin Em's Struck, who had his teammate Mazz calling him Kevin McHale from the bench. Yet, the 7th Floor Crew are aptly named, as they withstood the storm with a hurricane of buckets all their own. Clutch free throws from Kyle and Mike T in the waning minutes helped to seal this win for the 7th Floor Crew, preventing a valiant comeback by Spin Em.

Castels Cobwebs 64  Hurricanes 66

Hurricanes Outlast Cobwebs in Overtime, 66-64

Roberto Agritte missed a potential game-tying jumper in traffic, and the Hurricanes hung on Wednesday night to win a nailbiter against Castels Cobwebs in overtime.

The Cobwebs rushed to a 15-6 lead in the opening minutes behind explosive starts from Agritte and Jack Keough, who respectively finished with 18 and 25 points. Brian Bradley was everywhere and repeatedly stifled the Hurricanes' attempts to run any offense inside - he finished with 13 boards, 3 blocks, and 3 steals to go with 12 points.

The Hurricanes fought back with crisp play around the perimeter, closing the score to 39-35 by the half as Jimmy Lau, Jerry Chu, Vincent Wang, and Ian So all connected from beyond the arc. The Hurricanes also held the edge in rebounding, 28-25, over the bigger Cobwebs lineup, as both teams sprinted to chase down missed 3's.

Both teams made defensive adjustments in the second half. The Cobwebs stuck to the Hurricanes' perimeter shooters, forcing them to put the ball on the floor, and again they exploded into the half, widening the lead to 56-45.

The Hurricanes responded by swarming the ball inside, their bench screaming for a double every time Keough touched the ball in the post. Justin Lui drained a 3 to force a 60-60 tie, and neither team scored again in regulation. He finished with 9 rebounds and a team-high 14 points.

The Hurricanes took the lead for the first time in overtime, 66-64, off 2 points from Vincent Wang, and they survived as Agritte missed a contested 15-footer at the other end. Jimmy Lau recorded a game-high 11 assists, while Mike Gander and Ron Liu combined for 14 points and 14 boards inside. Jerry Chu finished in double figures with 10 points.
